"Everything happens for a reason..."
Meanwhile, my buddy J. and I hit the road yesterday in search of a new Goodwill to pillage. Another J. gave me the notion of finding Goodwills near more affluent neighborhoods..and was she ever was right, but we didn't consult the map before we went questing. The light purple is how we got there, the darker purple how we got home.
Still, my little car sits for too long unused, is good on gas even running the AC and it gave us time to catch up, reflect and plot. Over lunch I found out she had reconnected and made peace with the spouse who had abandoned her to single-motherhood so ago. It was wonderful to hear the relief in her voice from putting down this burden of anger and bitterness carried all these many years.
When we got back to my house with our finds, we sat in my newly AC'ed studio and chatted over most of a Braves game on TV, re-hydrated and generally relaxed like the queens of our world that we are. Blessed.
